Rebuilding the AX15..advice please

Has anyone here ever done this, or researched it.

If you read one of my other threads , you'll know that I have been having an issue with 2nd gear grinding. I know a few people were saying just keep on driving it. But heres the only problem I have with that.
I drove home from work...(20 minutes) then to the food store, maybe another 10 minutes, so by the end of driving for a half an hour my tranny grinded 2nd gear every single time i up or downshifted. In the begining of my drive home it was good, shifted nice and easy, then it all went down hill. I couldnt get one clean shift. And some of them were good grinds.

So Im considering maybe getting a junkyard tranny, and attempting to rebuild it while I continue trashing the original one. This way at least it will give me some time to get a newer one together. And I can spread the cost over a little time.
Im no mechanic but I do have a little more experience with mechanics than the average guy. I try to do all my repairs myself. And have a buddy help with bigger more complex jobs.

Sorry for the long read but everytime that thing grinds i turn into this..
